Climate protection

While cement is a product of critical importance, we cannot shy away from the fact that cement production is both energy-intensive and greenhouse gas emissions-intensive.

In 2009/10 Cement Australia was accountable for just over three million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. Our goal is for Cement Australia to be the industry leader, known for products that emit less carbon dioxide year-on-year, in their manufacture and transport, and as a company that works closely with its customers to ensure its products are used in the most efficient way. We will provide Australians with buildings and infrastructure that are more environmentally friendly in their construction and use.
